Taking a Bold Action by Meggin McIntosh, PhD
“Fortune befriends the bold.” — John Dryden
Is bold a word you use to describe yourself, your behaviors, your thoughts, and your actions? If you haven’t imagined yourself as bold – up ’til now – What do you need to be bold about? Here are ten prompts to consider:
- Do you need to make a bold claim?
- Do you need to set a bold goal?
- Do you need to make a bold break?
- Do you need to have a bold conversation?
- Do you need to engage in a bold cause?
- Do you need to make a bold physical change in yourself or your environment?
- Do you need to deliver a bold testimonial?
- Do you need to offer a bold alternative?
- Do you need to make a bold decision?
- Do you need to find a bold friend and accountability partner?
See if one of these questions helps you think about an area where you want to be more bold. What could open up for you if you were more bold?
